[PVE-User] Recovery Disaster - What is the best practice...?

Your question is quite generic because it depends how you have configured
your PVE, what will be the storage backends etc.
I will assume that you have one PVE server with VMs stored in a local
storage like LVM or ZFS. You have a NAS as well where you store the backups
of these VMs (full backups).NAS is configured on PVE as a  NFS target.
So if your PVE server dies, the only thing needed is to mount NAS as NFS
target on the new PVE server and just retore the backups there. That could
take some time depending on the size of VMs.
